Several fans took to her Instagram post's comment section to slam Sarah for her outrageously priced bags. A fan commented, "Over 500.00 bucks for this bag !! Really?? So disappointed. A piece of denim, a strap and a zipper does not cost over 500.00 bucks." "$439 for the crossbody and $516 for the shouldersac 😆," wrote a n amused fan. "Too bad normal people can’t afford your things.. 😆," joked a fan. "This bag is amazing - I mean ofcouse it is at $370. In wild time with inflation going crazy and life costing more than ever - could you not have worn a pair of designer sunglasses and made the bag accessible for not just other rich folks!" pointed out a fan.
Another fan added, "This is so off putting. Don't rip people off. This is insulting to the people who have supported your journey. I'm going to let it slide but it's making me like putting my support elsewhere." "This is truly sad. I know they have to support their overindulgent life style somehow, but don't insult your fans and supporters. Please be contented with all that you have been blessed with. Remember where you came from. The world is struggling. Show some compassion," urged a fan. "Wow! It’s a great bag, but who can afford it???? Have you thought of providing more affordable options for those of us who don’t have a disposable income??? 🤷♀️" wondered a fan. "I personally feel that all of this is getting a little out of hand ..what average person can afford this "bag" ..and I'm sorry Sara it's not all that great looking!" echoed a fan.
